Pixels and planning come together to form the Magazine’s new website—and our office’s new Post-it phoenix mural.
When you’ve been hard at work redesigning the Magazine’s website, everything starts to look like a pixel, even the sticky notes at your desk. So we created this colorful phoenix on our office wall using 900 Post-it notes. To recreate the phoenix, follow the chart below. You’ll need:
  • Empty wall space, at least 8" x 8"
  • 900 standard Post-it notes (3" x 3") in four colors
  • Color 1 (gray): 526
  • Color 2 (black): 123
  • Color 3 (red): 153
  • Color 4 (orange): 98
  • A step-ladder
  • Several free hours (Note: it took our team of two about three hours)
